The Mystery Solutions Lab is designed to follow the Observing Chemical Changes Lab
Observing Chemical Changes Lab
but can be completed on its own. Students use the data they collected in the Chemical Changes Lab to design and conduct experiments that will lead them to the identity of the Mystery Solutions.
Each experiment conducted will lead students in their own direction that may be different from that of their classmates but resulting in the same ultimate discovery ... the Mystery Solutions.
The chemical solutions are the same as those from the Chemical Changes Lab making preparation easier for the teacher. Complete instructions for mixing stock solutions is included as well as a lab setup guide. Printable labels for all solutions are also included.
This packet includes an intro presentation to help students understand the scientific process and the lab procedure. Sample data from the Chemical Changes Lab is also included. With the Mystery Solutions Lab your students will be doing real science!
